Research internship responsibilities include, but are not limited to, data collection from shore using radio telemetry equipment and making visual observations with spotting scopes. Interns will record daily re-sights, forage observations, and activity budget data on marked wild sea otters.

Animal care internship responsibilities include, but are not limited to, daily care and feeding of ill, injured or orphaned sea otters, maintenance and cleaning of animal tanks and enclosures, and computer data entry.

All internship opportunities are unpaid or STEM Internships (STEM may include funding provided through your educational institution). College credit may also be available. Please refer to your College/University's student services division.
